Mike and I prayed for good neighbors to move in next to us and God
answered our prayers when Jerry and Jeannette arrived. What a blessing you were to our family. We love you and Renee and send prayers for you both during this time of grieving. We will miss Jerry but know he is in the loving arms of Jesus now and not suffering any longer.

Jerry lived next door on Lakridge Drive and I helped him a lot when I worked at Lowe's. He was a good caring person. My deepest condolences to the family.
